The world of fashion continues to embrace Dua Lipa. After all, we’ve witnessed the 28-year-old English and Albanian chart-topping songstress front just about every major international edition of Vogue there is – from American Vogue to Spanish Vogue and Australian Vogue to British Vogue (twice!). Dua’s latest cover conquest is the September 2023 issue of Vogue France. Shot by Mert Alas (oui, without his creative other half Marcus Piggott), the fashion darling and firm favorite of Donatella Versace becomes an Alaïa girl in the intriguing Vanessa Reid-styled cover image, partaking in some serious power dressing wearing a statement oversized (somewhat of an understatement) brown collared-jacket designed by Pieter Mulier.
The moment the cover surfaced, our forums were engulfed in debate. “Was this cover to show us that Marcus [Piggott] is the one who does the job well?” asked DK92.
“I will never understand the appeal of this blank woman, or her forgettable music,” said mepps.
Also far from overjoyed was VERNIQUE, adding: “I still don’t get the appeal of Dua Lipa. Even if she tries very hard to be edgy, she seems to have the charisma of a basset hound – and the cover reflects that perfectly!”
“Why is she even in fashion? I find Dua Lipa one of the most boring celebrities ever. Basic music, no personal style, she just wears hyped brands,” artemovartem called out.
A select few of theFashionSpot’s forum members were left pleasantly surprised. “Not what I was expecting when I clicked on the thread but gotta say that I love this! Very high fashion IMO and it’s perfect for September,” kokobombon approved.
“I like this look on Dua and I think she pulls it off. The exaggerated collar works very well for me and while it’s not perfect, I don’t hate that cover choice. I think this is the best Dua’s ever looked on Vogue,” reasoned aracic.
